Anemone Reef - Dive site
This unique dive-site is a huge lime-stone pinnacle that soars 30 meters up from the ocean floor to sit 4 meters beneath the surface where it abruptly ends and drops back to a sandy bottom.
The barely submerged reef is a well-known shipping hazard and is located less than a mile north of Shark Point. The Thai name for this site is Hin Jom which means underwater rock, the site is famous for its vast fields of sea anemones that cling to every conceivable surface and swing and sway with the current.
The profusion of sea anemones and the nutrient-rich water are a magnet to a constant parade of reef fish seeking food and shelter. Enormous schools of tropical's, snappers, groupers, and colorful clown fish, along with larger game-fish like tuna and barracuda as well as the occasional leopard shark can be seen here.
